Fergus

Origen: Escocés, Irlandés. Las islas históricas de Hebrides y la costa del oeste de Escocia son el hogar ancestral de la familia de Fergus. Su nombre viene del apellido escocés MacFergus, que significa "son of Fergus / hijo de Fergus." The Fergus family comes from the ancient Scottish Dalriadan clans of the mountainous west coast of Scotland. The name Fergus is derived from the Scottish surname MacFergus, which means "son of Fergus". First found in Galloway, Ireland where St. Fergus (Fergustian) (circa 730 AD) was an Irish bishop, who went to Scotland as a missionary. He settled near Strageath and founded three churches in Strogeth and two in Caithness. It is possible that he was the Fergustus Pictus who went to Rome in 721 AD. According to Irish lore, a family of this name descend from Fergus, Prince of Galloway (d. 1161), who is said to have married a daughter of Henry I of England.
